Big Bad World - Live 1-16-2009 plus - MJRF


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Live acoustic version from 1-16 of this year (I archive most shows I do online for review later). Tonight in honor of the reunion I added bass, lead guitar and a second voice to this. Each addition pretty much live (1 pass each).

This was one of the songs I posted in my first year and it became the title track on one of my albums. The live solo acoustic version is very different than the original from 2004 (and the refinement that made it on the CD)

Lyrics
Why don't you come with me,
into my little room.
It's where I feel so safe,
just like a mothers womb.

And the big, bad world outside my door
makes me want to scream "No More!"
What is it that makes me hide?
Will the demons always stay outside?

It must be the government,
you know they've got a plot,
to make us all their slaves
and take every thing we've got

That's why I'm stockpiling.
You know that I'll survive.
If they come to take my guns
they won't take me alive

And the big, bad world outside my door
makes me want to scream "No More!"
What is it that makes me hide?
Will the demons always stay outside?

I'm always watchfull
keep looking for the signs
I've got my shortwave
and my cabin in the pines.

And the big, bad world outside my door
makes me want to scream "No More!"
What is it that makes me hide?
Will the demons always stay outside?
Do you wonder
Why I've brought you here
In a moment
I'll make it all seem clear

You are essential
you're a big part of my plan
It also simple:
You're a woman I'm a man.

Why do you look afraid?
What was that you said?
You think I'm paranoid!?
Little voices in my head?

That's what they all tell me
I thought you were unique.
Why won't you talk to me
I really wish you'd speak.

And the big, bad world outside my door
makes me want to scream "No More!"
What is it that makes me hide?
Will the demons always stay outside?

And the big, bad world outside my door
makes me want to scream "No More!"
What is it that makes me hide?
Are the demons already inside?

It's
just not the same unless it's done by a giant eyeball in a tuxedo :)

But a decent version nonetheless. I liked the bassline in particular

I like how you started this in true festival fashion, like, you were actually addressing an audience.

I thought (personal opinion) the guitar noodling on the right channel was a little extraneous. Coulda done with just the vox and acoustic guit-box. Don't listen to me. I'm an eediot! Cool tune!

Very cool
Very cool song. Love them lyrics - some excellent imagery and really dark, sharp lines. Vocal performance is excellent - great rich voice, filled with soul. Nicely done. Very cool. Peace.
